On Tuesday, July 16, customers who visit their local Whataburger restaurant from 3 to 7 p.m. and donate a minimum of two cans or non-perishable items will receive a free Whataburger.

“Many of us tend to remember those who are hungry during the holidays, while the truth is that the need is pressing upon us all year long” said Dennis Cullinane, CEO of the East Texas Food Bank. “We are so grateful for this summertime holiday warmth and our amazing partnership with Whataburger!”

Additionally, customers who donate $1 or more to the East Texas Food Bank at participating locations between July 15 and July 28 will receive a paper ornament and have their name decorate the walls of their hometown Whataburger.
